Regrettably, the docs for the Password realm saith:

    NOTE If the password_field is something other than 'password', you
must be sure to use that same field name when calling

I'd call that a bug, personally - it certainly isn't intuitive that
you can specify the field to use, but then have to remember it in all
your calls to authenticate().

Not much can be done about that, though. Maybe someone can produce an adaptor?
